Join Mark and Debbie Attanasio for an “Inside the Brewers” Discussion on July 8

On Wednesday, July 8, you can join Mark and Debbie Attanasio for an intimate “Inside The Brewers” program at the Rubenstein Pavilion on Prospect Avenue.

The Q and A and discussion will be moderated by Brewers broadcaster Brian Anderson, and you’ll learn what it’s like to be behind the scenes and part of the Brewers ownership family.

The event is being presented by the Jewish Museum Milwaukee, and only 250 tickets are available for this very special evening. For more information on how you can secure your place at this special event, visit jewishmuseummilwaukee.org.

This event is being offered in connection with the current Jewish Museum Milwaukee exhibit, Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American, which opened earlier this month . Mark and Debbie Attanasio, along with Bud and Sue Selig, also serve as Honorary Co-Chairs of the exhibit, which runs through September 7.

The exhibit consists of a core panel developed by and on loan from the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia. It has been augmented by artifacts on loan from local organizations and individuals and explores how baseball has served as an arena in which values, identity, ethnicity, and race have been projected, contested, and occasionally solidified.

The exhibit celebrates well-known Jewish heroes such as Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax, as well as iconic baseball pioneers such as Jackie Robinson, Joe DiMaggio, Roberto Clemente, and Ichiro Suzuki. It also highlights baseball’s extended family of vendors, team owners, minor leaguers, amateur players, scouts, broadcasters, journalists, novelists and fans.

Here are some photos from the museum and the exhibit itself:
